I'd be fine with something like that, if one of you can make it up right quick. Smile

They definitely still need something more, but I'm glad they've made it into the latest expansion draft. I still think Masterweaver's "Dangerous Domain" ability could work for them, as it feels like a Zebra making the best out of what they have at hand, living in more dangerous territory - like the Everfree Forest - and still thriving on crit fails.

Otherwise, I'm going to have to think about that Alchemy table a bit more...

I'm planning to use Alchemy as an Everypony talent. I'm not a fan of Dangerous Domain, since it's not very flavorful with Zebras. A pretty hefty stretch. Also both not that exciting and makes Derp way too broken. If we power up the Zebra, we could make the rhyming ability better or something similar.

^Okay, I didn't read this before my last post in the Hooved Races.

I definitely wouldn't mind seeing the rhyming power get boosted. Either that, or perhaps we could go back to the idea of Zebras getting a 3rd trained skill as well as a Cutie Mark?

I just feel like Zebras currently need one more ability or something. What about going back to some form of Zebra Sense? Maybe a once to three times a day ability that could get the GM to tell the players a DC for a check before any roll is made? That could be a way to portray a Zebra form of alertness, and it would let the players know when to pull out the big modifiers on their skill checks.

BTW - I'd love to see someone do an art rendering for Z-Rock (;

Zebras can now use their rhyming nearly twice as much. That should up the power-balance and give the zebra-lover even more chances to rhyme.

Significant changes to Changelings as well, blending together a lot of different ideas from the discussion in the Hooved Races thread.

Just looked over the changes to Zebras.

-Everything looks cool to me, and that Zebra intro rhyme is sweet (:

Awesome. Took a long time, but the end result definitely seems worth it.

And we owe Kenzmaka for the idea to make the zebra intro a rhyme. I just wrote a quick one.

Sweet, more races! These all look pretty good; having already made a Changeling, I especially appreciated the changes to them, since it gave me a lot more options in the utility talent area. Very Happy

I trust that when this expansion is officially done, note only will it show up in the "Official Game and Game Updates" section of the forum, but the appropriate parts of the Player's Handbook will be changed to match their updated versions, right?

Yep. The Griffon/Changeling parts are going to be deleted from the Player's Handbook though. I'll just keep a link in it, like the one to Martial Power.
